Program Notes

The ship of Theseus, also known as Theseus' paradox, is a thought experiment that raises the question of whether an object that has had all of its components replaced remains fundamentally the same object. The paradox is most notably recorded by Plutarch in Life of Theseus from the late first century. Plutarch asked whether a ship that had been restored by replacing every single wooden part remained the same ship.

- Program Note from Wikipedia


Joel Puckett's work, Ship of Theseus, was commissioned by the Northwestern University Symphonic Wind Ensemble to celebrate the opening of the Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Center for the Musical Arts on the Northwestern University campus in Evanston, Illinois.
